Planning for a Greener Campus

Penn Sustainability is the umbrella organization of faculty, students and staff that addresses environmental sustainability planning and policy development by coordinating programs and initiatives for a more sustainable campus. Spurred by President Amy Gutmann's signing of the Presidents' Climate Commitment, Penn developed a strategic plan outlining the University's goals for carbon reduction, and on September 15, 2009 the University unveiled its Climate Action Plan. This comprehensive strategy addresses reducing the campus' greenhouse gas emissions through a unique partnership among faculty, students and staff, and creates a culture of sustainability at Penn.
